I was looking at my hats, and because I am a member of a bunch of SE sites, which I visit regularly, I earned the Social Distancing Main hat on 9 of them. But my profile will only show 7 of the sites where I earned the hat: enter image description here

There is enough space to show the other site icons under the first row, so why does it say 'and 2 other sites' instead of just showing the sites? It just seems odd that it shows text and not the sites themselves.

    A cleaner look? Eventually, if you earn enough hats, it's going to start pushing down there. I only need four more... – Ollie Dec 27 '20 at 19:09

Well, 9 communities may not be a problem, but there 176 different Stack Exchange sites, and there are users who joined them all. How would 176, or say just 30 sites, look all cluttered up on that small area? Not too professional, I imagine...

Yep. (I haven't really earned the badge on every site, of course.)

  • How did you make that image if you didn't earn the badge on all those sites? – user1271772 Dec 28 '20 at 18:20

    @user1271772 Grueling paint work ;) – Ann Zen of Python Dec 28 '20 at 18:23
  • You're not serious are you? How long did it take? – user1271772 Dec 28 '20 at 18:26

    @user1271772 I don't really remember. As much as I'd like to say I used python, I took a screen shot of this, and kept copy-pasting from one paint file to the other. – Ann Zen of Python Dec 28 '20 at 18:29
  • But your image is flawless: the icons are all in perfectly straight rows and columns. It couldn't have been from dragging and dropping (?) – user1271772 Dec 28 '20 at 18:50

    @user1271772 I don't know what to say, I'm telling you the truth. I guess I'm flattered :) – Ann Zen of Python Dec 28 '20 at 19:38
  • It was well done. How long did it take? – user1271772 Dec 28 '20 at 20:08
  • @user1271772 I really don't remember. TBH, it's not flawless either... – Ann Zen of Python Dec 28 '20 at 20:10
  • Looks pretty flawless to me. I see no columns or rows that are not straight! – user1271772 Dec 28 '20 at 20:16
